Katong Durian, known to be the “new kid on the block”. It was only in 2008 when they progressed from a makeshift stall to the present shop they are in. Although, they have been receiving mixed reviews both on social media and popular food sites, you would most probably hear their name pop up when Durian is discussed because of their ever-growing reputation within the network.
I assume the different reviews are most probably caused by the fact that the shop has not been in the Durian scene as long as the other popular sellers (I mean, most sellers out there have been around for over 20 years – hard to compete with that, right?). We can all agree that competing with well-established Durian sellers is not the easiest task since they have built a solid market. When it comes to relatively newer Durian sellers, loyalty will always play a factor in the success of their brand. So if you can’t get the loyal customers of other sellers to pick you, you find other ways to make yourself known. Despite the variation in views and thoughts, Katong Durian is definitely making their name known in the industry.
Among the countless reviews you would most probably hear or read about them, the most popular amid positive comments are:
- They carry a variety of Durian. Variety means choices!
- You can choose from a variety of Durian! This is an option unavailable to other Durian shops. Their existing Durian products are not limited to Mau Shan King or XO. Most popular Durian vendors carry a single kind of Durian since they have stuck to the Durian they have grown for decades. If you want to be a little adventurous with your Durian purchase – they would be able to help you in that area. There would even be stories of them having a few pieces of Durian with no names. Customers would buy them and end up saying it was the best decision ever. If you’re up for a little mystery and variety, they would be worth trying.
- They have competitive Durian prices.
- They have gotten a lot of positive feedback when it comes to pricing. An example pricing, would be for their takeaway Durian (of course, there is takeaway! I mean, we have to be able to eat our Durian right away and anywhere, right?)
